The tour to Poland, during which the emphasis would be on the air show of Radom, started on Wednesday 24 August. Eleven of the thirteen participants met at Schiphol for an easy KLM flight to Warsaw. At Warsaw the group waited a short while for the arrival of the two participants from the United Kingdom, after which they headed for Skarzysko Kamienna at the end of the afternoon. The hotel for the duration of the tour was located there. The restaurant knew we would be relatively late and was awaiting 13 empty stomachs.
